Browse more privately with Apple Maps.
When it comes to finding places, there is nothing that competes with Google Maps. There are similar alternatives and one of them is Apple Maps.
It is not difficult to see that this app is still far from competing with the Google tool. Apple Maps has been correcting things over time, as it had problems with some locations, but the reality is that it is still a long way from competing with Google Maps.
Despite the great difference in terms of functions of both maps, Apple’s has a great advantage and that could also help to restore a little more confidence to its users.
In this case, we mean data collection. Google Maps stores information about its users, while Apple Maps does not collect any information.
Can Apple Maps be used on an Android?
One of the problems with this tool is its exclusivity with iOS, but there is a trick that allows you to use it from Android devices and here we explain how it is done.
Accessing Apple Maps is possible using the DuckDuckGo browser. What happens is that the privacy policies of not collecting information or sharing personal information integrate these maps. What you should do in this case is to install the browser on your Android.
Once you have DuckDuckGo you will perform a search through its default engine. There we will see a results page where you can segment by content type. In this case, you are going to touch the map function that appears at the top.
A split screen with information about places will appear. Write a place you want to search and you will see the information you need and you will be able to see the map in full screen.
In this way, it is possible to navigate the maps in a more discreet and private way without having to provide personal data.
